“We cannot organize revival, but we can set our sails to catch the wind from Heaven when God chooses to blow upon His people once again.” G. Campbell Morgan


“The story of revivals throughout the ages has been the story of lone men meeting God, of going out and finding God all alone. Sometimes they went down to the church basement, sometimes to the caves, sometimes out under trees, sometimes by haystacks, but they went alone to meet God, and then the revival went out from there.”  A.W. Tozer


“If we ever impress unsaved men with a wholesome fear of the supernatural we must have once more the dignity of the Holy Spirit; we must know again that awe-inspiring mystery which comes upon men and churches when they are full of the power of God” A.W. Tozer


“The coming revival must begin with a great revival of prayer. It is in the closet, with the door shut, that the sound of abundance of rain will first be heard. An increase of secret prayer with ministers will be the sure harbinger of blessing.” Andrew Murray


“A revival is nothing else than a new beginning of obedience to God. Revival is a renewed conviction of sin and repentance, followed by an intense desire to live in obedience to God. It is giving up one’s will to God in deep humility.” Charles Finney


“The only reason why we don’t have revival is because we are willing to live without it.” Leonard Ravenhill


“Study the history of revival. God has always sent revival in the darkest days. Oh, for a mighty, sweeping revival today.”  Adrian Rogers
“Oh! men and brethren, what would this heart feel if I could but believe that there were some among you who would go home and pray for a revival – men whose faith is large enough, and their love fiery enough to lead them from this moment to exercise unceasing intercessions that God would appear among us and do wondrous things here, as in the times of former generations.” C.H. Spurgeon


“True revival is that divine moment when God bursts upon the scene and displays his glory. Revival is not just evangelism, excitement, or emotionalism. It is the extraordinary movement of the Holy Spirit! Revival, no matter how great or small in its ultimate scope, always begins with individual believers whose hearts are desperate for God, and who are willing to pay the price to meet Him. If revival depended on you — your prayers, your faith, your obedience — would your church ever experience revival?” Del Fehsenfeld Jr.


“Revival is when God gets so sick and tired of being misrepresented that He shows Himself.” Leonard Ravenhill


“An awakening is ready to burst on the dismal scene when Christians have a deep, profound Spirit of prayer for an awakening.” Lewis Drummond


“Revival is not the discovery of some new truth. It’s the rediscovery of the grand old truth of God’s power in and through the Cross.”  Sammy Tippit


“Perhaps the greatest barrier to revival on a large scale is the fact that we are too interested in a great display. We want an exhibition; God is looking for a man who will throw himself entirely on God. Whenever self-effort, self-glory, self-seeking or self-promotion enters into the work of revival, then God leaves us to ourselves.”  Ted Rendall


“Revival is falling in love with Jesus all over again.” Vance Havner
